Home » Carol S. Dweck

Nominated by:  Casey Cobb

Carol S. Dweck is Lewis and Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University and author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. Dweck’s groundbreaking research on “growth mindsets” has had profound impacts on teachers, schools, and students across the world. When educators foster the belief in their students that intelligence can be developed–a growth mindset–their students achieve at higher levels than those who perceive abilities as fixed. For her work, Dweck has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences and American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has won nine lifetime achievement awards.
